It's the last day of school!!!! Tomorrow is a teacher work day, but today is our last day with the kids!
Last night I hardly got any sleep. I was really upset about Friday's break-in, and I kept thinking about people coming into our house. Brad is being really good about it - he is really supportive and understanding, and he is not taking any of my feelings lightly. I truly have a wonderful partner.
And as I was laying in bed, not able to sleep, I thought about how truly lucky we were that neither of us were home, and that nothing really important to us got stolen. For a long while I was truly thankful that Brad and I don't buy a lot of stuff.
Not that I don't *like* stuff, but I really looked around to see what was important to me. I realized that none of the important stuff was the latest gadget (well okay, my phone and my computer are pretty darn important), but my linens that my grandmother sewed, the oil pourer from Italy and the chopsticks from China...
So along with my summer goals of adding more cardio and eating mostly plants, I am going to take more time to appreciate what I have. Clean out things that I don't love and/or use, and spend some time on Freecycle.
water water water!
sushi for lunch! - we are getting take-out to celebrate the last day
ONE ice cream today. I have been going ice cream crazy.
do some form of cardio
post SOMETHING on Freecycle - get the ball rolling
I put on a skirt that was getting a little tight (eep!) and today it was not tight. Hooray! Hooray for water and fruits and veggies!
